water stream dilemma

We are currently designing our garden. behind our garden we have a forest and a small stream. we will have our sitting area at the far end of our garden. we would love to enjoy the water sounds and just view too ...

What can we use instead of fence?
Thanks for any suggestions



Do you just need to mark the boundary? Or do you need to exclude wildlife--four-legged or two-legged? ;)

Hi Tugbrethil - mark the boundary, although excluding wildlife is also a good idea :)

If it is just to define the boundary then a low stone wall just a couple of feet high would do it but if you need to keep deer out then you would need a wire fence. This could just be two or three single wires from the top of the wall.
Maybe some decking behind the wall for a raised seating area.

Maybe a wrought iron fence, though that's usually pricy. I hope Belgium isn't too much like Arizona: some places here, the only thing that keeps out the two-leged wildlife is razor wire.
